Las Vegas Police Make Arrests In $30 Million Drug Bust

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas)  — Two Utah residents have been arrested in connection with a $30 million drug lab bust near the Las Vegas strip.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department raided a building Nov. 7 that happened to be a major production and distribution facility for illegal synthetic drugs.

Due to the highly volatile nature of the chemicals involved, all officers had to enter the building wearing full hazmat protection gear.

Inside the building, police discovered ingredients used to make drugs known as “spice,” “bath salts,” “black mamba,” “kryptonite,” “white ivory,” and “monkey dust.”

Las Vegas police say these drugs are so dangerous that the hallucinogenic effects are 100 times greater than LSD and are considered a significant medical threat to their users.

According to police reports obtained by CBS Las Vegas, these synthetic narcotics have a street value of between $40 and $60 per gram.

The names of the suspects have not been released.
